Don’t Do This

“Do not take anything personally.”

Don Miguel Ruiz, The Voice of Knowledge

Ruiz explains further, “Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally… Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves.”

What a shame it is to take what others say personally. You cannot control what others say to you or about you. And they don’t even really know you. So why bother?

  1. Thanks so much for this! Women tend to fall into this role of ‘we are what we do”.

    It’s been frustrating throughout my professional life to have to ‘walk on eggshells’ around women who… skew male entitlement philosophy.

    Men ARE what they do…
    Yet what they do isn’t WHO they are…

    I’m working on a project with my girls this summer. I will borrow this quote, if you are okay with it?

    Thanks! (Either way)
